Thanksgiving is coming, and Hanukkah and Christmas follow close behind. This year, Thanksgiving is on November 22nd; Hanukkah starts on December 4th; and Christmas, as always, is on December 25th.

This year, I’ve created new links to my holiday recipes to make them more easily accessible. At the top of the page, you will see links directly to the pages. They can also be found in the recipes links in the right-hand sidebar.

Deleting Non-Raw Vegan Links

I have suffered the great disappointment of having to delete some links I had proudly added to my blogroll here. Unfortunately, I discovered that I had links that do not advocate a raw food lifestyle, and I do not wish to support that kind of link here. If you saw a link here, and it is now gone, that is why. I removed ZenPawn today.


I signed up for an unlimited month of hot yoga today. I went to the class and did not die. I was surprised that I made it through everything, even though it has been two months since I was last there. Amazing. I will probably hurt tomorrow, because I did everything. I was excited about being able to do everything, though.

So…. raw food people are always talking about what gets in the way of their lifestyle choices. I’m not having any trouble eating raw, but as soon as I signed up for a month of yoga (so I should go at least 4 times a week), I got all these things I have to do ….. I have to get my hair cut, and it will take at least an hour to get to the hairdresser and an hour to get back, so there goes tomorrow night. Then I got an email from Lesa that it is time for her full moon get-together (so there goes Wednesday night)

I’m excited that Lesa’s full-moon raw food women’s gathering is this week.I went to the one last month, and I had so much fun. I hope more people will come. Her place is tiny and built-in, like a boat, but that makes it so cozy you don’t miss the fireplace (tee hee) This time, Lesa has expanded the time and the concept…. everyone should bring a salad ingredient to throw in her big salad bowl, to make a pot-luck salad. Cool idea. I will be there early! I hope that more local women (NYC – she’s in Manhattan) will come. If you want to know where, I can forward her invitation.  I hope you will join us.

The wonderful part about Lesa’s meets is that there are no politics, ……just sharing……, no selling, no psychoanalysis/counseling/NLP….no one right way…. just sharing.  This is what I have been looking for in a raw food group, and unable to find up until now.
